>Khaleda refuses to be voter while in jail

>DETAINED former premier minister Khaleda Zia yesterday again declined to register herself as a voter from behind bars, passing the last chance for it in the capital city area. (Full report)
Advisers to the military backed caretaker government on Sunday however said Khaleda Zia will be released ‘unconditionally very soon’ as the government completed all procedures for it. Khaleda, also the BNP chairperson, will not be eligible to contest in the upcoming parliamentary poll if she is not registered as a voter in any of the constituencies, according to the planned electoral reforms.
The specified 15 days for inclusion of names of left out prospective voters on the voter list for Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) and Dhaka cantonment areas ended yesterday, receiving over 7,000 applications for registration.
